12 Days until #TBF2014! I am so excited to meet our authors this year, including Jonathan Auxier, who wrote Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes.
Peter Nimble is an orphan who has taken up a life of thievery to support himself. Peter was blinded when he was a child ; this makes his other senses more powerful and Peter of the best thieves in his port village. One night, Peter steals a box from a traveling haberdasher. There are pairs of magical eyes inside the box- each has a different power. Soon, Peter is given a quest, accompanied by Sir Tode, a knight who has some problems of his own. Peter and Sir Tode find themselves trying to solve a riddle in the Just Deserts. There they meet many interesting characters and find danger.
Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is a fun read. I really enjoy the narrator's commentary about the events in the novel. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys fantasy or interesting characters. Check out the book's website: http://www.peternimble.com/
Jonathan Auxier's new book, The Night Gardener, is being released on May 20th.
